Recommends it for: Fans of Christmas themed anthologies that pack a little heat
Three cute Christmas themed stories with varying degrees of heat--perfect for busy pre-holiday days when time for reading (and the ability to concentrate on) more involved stories is limited.

The three stories in this anthology all have a running theme--Santa Claus's younger brother Damon Claus (who is a manipulative, mischievous "bad-boy" resentful of the holiday and all the joy big brother Santa brings) is involved in some naughty way in each of the stories, throwing the couples together, hopin
This was a quickie, light-weight Christmas-themed anthology with three hot little stories. Santa's younger brother, Damon Claus, is fed up with the whole Christmas cheer and decides to imbue the season to be jolly with a little naughtiness…His (un)fortunate victims are former high-school sweethearts that rekindle their flame thanks to some healthy Christmas decorations competition, an arson investigator and a firefighter joining forces to find the secret admirer that is sending her sex toys and ...more

Drei Kurzgeschichten und in allen drei treibt Damon Claus, der böse kleine Bruder von Santa Claus sein Unwesen. Er hasst die Weihnachtszeit und hat von jeder Rivalitätskämpfe mit seinem Bruder ausgetragen. Hier fängt alles mit einer Liste an..

Im ersten Band geht es um Hayden und Riley, die in der Highschool ein Paar waren aber durch eine intrigante Mitschülerin ihre Beziehung auf dem Abschlussball beendet haben. Nun sind beide wieder in ihrem Heimatstädtchen gelandet und halten die alte Traditio
Das Buch beinhaltet 3 Geschichten, die alle damit zusammenhängen, dass Damon Claus, der Bruder des Weihnachtsmannes, Weihnachten nicht so gern mag und Unruhe stiften will bzw. seinem Bruder nicht helfen will.

1)Süßer als ein Zimtstern - VICKI LEWIS THOMPSON (1,5 Sterne)
--> Damon sorgt dafür, dass Hayden und Riley den vormals Nachbarschaftskampf um die bessere Weihnachtsgartenbeleuchtung ihrer Familien wieder aufleben lassen. Den Handlungsaufbau fand ich wirklich gut, aber leider wurde dann all
I hated this Damon Claus character. That got rid of at least one star from this book. There was so much potential in this concept and it was all wasted on creepiness. The Vicki Lewis Thompson story was underwhelming, but I did enjoy the next two and will look up these authors.

Only for Jill Shalvis' part

Super fast (little character development), and I was kind of confused by the Damon Claus thing (though I only read Jill Shalvis' novella, so that's somewhat my fault).

No Mistletoe Required - great read. So cute, introduced us to the character of Damon Clause (hysterical, btw).

Her Secret Santa - okay read. Not one of my faves from Shalvis...and I am a huge fan of hers. It was a little boring for me, sadly.

Snug in His Bed - really liked this story. Quick, fun read. It wrapped up Damon Clause and his antics throughout all three stories. Overall, book was a fun read.
A fairly good book, this would get a 2.5 rating from me. I guess they aren't meant to be very inspiring, but I did enjoy the premise of Santa's naughty younger brother getting people together over the holidays.

Three romantic and sexy stories with one character, Santa's brother, interweaved and trying to cause mischief in each one. Very original idea for these charming Christmas tales. Great read!!
